john. >> john: thank you. so president obama sounded rather frustrated this morning when he mentioned washington commentators who say the nation's moved on since the sandy hook massacre. and that the opportunity to enact any serious gun control legislation may have passed us by. a recent poll, sir, suggests those commentators may be right. do you think the political momentum has shifted already on gun control? >> well, actually, i share the president's frustration that nothing has yet happened on gun safety legislation moving its way through congress. i hope we have not missed that window of opportunity to bring gun safety legislation up before the congress to at least have a vote on these issues. that's what the president asked for in his state of the union message. that's what i have been calling on -- for and the violence task force has been calling for. i believe that the victims of sandy hook and so many victims of gun violence across this country deserve a vote in congress on this issue. >> john: sir how offensive is it to you when you hear nra officials using phrases like the c

far. according to the "wall street journal," the obama administration has decided to turn down the volume. white house correspondent dan lothian live from washington on that part of the story for us this morning. dan, this report reveals that the administration has a game plan for showing military force, but it also says the white house is now dialing back. why? >> reporter: well, you're right. i mean, the report talks about sort of this playbook, if you will, that has specific steps that was signed off on by the administration. essentially, the u.s. flexing its muscles to try to turn down the temperature, not only in north korea but also in the region there. but this report pointing out that the steps that the u.s. has taken may have been more provocative, may have pushed and provoked this new leader, kim jong-un, more than intended, so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind that the u.s. presence has been increasing in the region in recent weeks starting back on march 8th when the u.s. flew b-52s as part of what was described as a routine mission. then about 2 1

hear what you are saying. but i'm talking about white house credibility. why that obama administration agenda stalled? is it because of the credibility issues? >> you know it is frustrating. you know businesses are not confident that what is coming out of washington -- all of the policymakers, white house and congress -- is something they did count on. this is the problem, they don't have confidence to invest back in their. and to know what their costs will be. you know businesses fundamentally take a multiyear time horizon in their planning, they don't know from -- when they don't know, as they don't know now what their costs will be because of government regulation, and taxiningation, y cannot plan, they cannot afford the risk of adding the jobs. liz: steve makes a great point, really, the white house saying spring break will slow job creation, come on, seriously? that is what they are saying is to blame? are you serious? come on. the medical device tax is going nowhere. there is little money now for infrastructure, $21 million verse what the president originally wanted. i think that

much. we have breaking news right now in washington. john harwood with the details. over to you, john. >> maria, this is part of the sequester battle this is symbolic. you had president obama at the white house confirming he's going to return 5% of his salary since the beginning of the sequester, which hit on march the 1st. now, the president makes $400,000 a year. that's a little more than $30,000 a month, which means that 5% of that for a month, so far, we're just in the beginning of april, is less than $2,000. not a consequential amount of money, but this is part of the president's attempt to get the high ground, especially as some of the sequester effects kick in. i wouldn't be at all surprised, we heard a similar thing from chuck hagel, the defense secretary, because a lot of the defense cuts are coming in defense, earlier today. i wouldn't be surprised if we hear that from some members of congress, with the question of leadership as well. but principally, only for those who like president obama, don't actually need that money, maria. >> john, thanks so much. john, let me ask you
